The Buckling utility allows a buckling subcase to be defined simultaneously with its referenced static subcase.

  1. Enter a name.
  2. Provide data for V1, V2 (upper and lower limits for eigenvalue calculation) and/or ND (number of modes to be calculated).
  3. Select appropriate load collectors for LOAD and SPC references.
    Only load collectors containing valid loads are displayed in the drop-down menus.
  4. Click Create.
    The EIGRL load collector is created. The static and buckling load steps are also created.
